Improving all the time over hurdles and made no mistake when an easy winner at Cork in a maiden hurdle in March. Starts life in handicaps off a fair mark but long absence a slight concern.
Winner of a 2m3f maiden hurdle at Downpatrick in June getting off the mark at the sixth time of asking for connections; bit of a mixed bag since then showing promise at Downpatrick in August before disappointing at Ballinrobe later the same month.
Just the one maiden hurdle win to her name; last seen tailed off in a Flat race at Cork; has showed glimpses of form in handicaps but not the most reliable of mares and hard to recommend with confidence on current form.
Tends to be well supported in the market but let supporters down once again when finishing 4th in a maiden hurdle at Clonmel earlier this month (beaten a long way); more needed here on handicap debut.
Has been difficult to train but showed her current well being when finishing a creditable 3rd at Navan in September; won her maiden hurdle here in July over this trip; would not want the ground to get too soft but holds as good a chance as any.
Off the mark over hurdles at the 11th time of asking for connections when landing a Fairyhouse hurdle in good style in April; contrasting form in two starts afterwards; likes to front run and may be able to dictate here if fit from long absence.
Has struggled a little on the Flat but hurdles form looks reasonable; won well at Clonmel in June before falling and finishing down the field in two subsequent starts; good chance on the best of her form.
Still a maiden after 11 starts over hurdles and never been placed in a handicap; on the plus side she is tumbling down the weights but it takes a huge leap of faith to see her challenging to win this.
